Closed Caption are not visible if the project is published scalable

My project is running in the HTML preview and all Closed Captions are visible. If I publish the project to HTML scalable the Closed Captions are not visible. Publish the same project to HTML but NOT scalable I can see the Closed Caption.

Is this normal or a bug?
Thank you for the answers.

How can we use an SRT file to import closed captions?

The ability to use srt files for closed captions would save so much time.  Does the 2019 version have this ability?

Also, is there a program like Grammarly that could be used to quickly edit closed captions so that capitalizations and grammar are correct.

I am stuck in my production as CC is needed for optimal compliance.

Pause/Play causes an error with Closed Captions?

Hello Captivate friends,

I am attempting to add closed captions to a slide with an added YouTube video.  It would not allow me to add captions to this type of video, so I included a slide-length audio clip of silence, which then allowed me to add closed captions.

The closed captions play through perfectly unless the user clicks my customized play/pause button ( set with advanced actions to pause/continue the slide).  If the user pauses the slide, the closed captions will not continue when you press play.  Pressing play will continue the slide/video, but the closed captions will no longer change text.

Do you have any suggestions on how to fix this error?

ADOBE CAPTIVATE 2017: Improved Closed Captions

by Kevin Siegel, COTP, CTT
When it comes to accessibility, Adobe’s products have always been some of the best available. Nevertheless, Adobe found a way to improve them. Take Captivate’s closed captions for example.

Closed captioning is the process of adding text to the screen to support learners with a hearing disability. The idea behind closed captions is for the hearing challenged learner to see exactly what the narrator is saying as the narrator is saying it.
While Captivate has featured closed captions for years, developers had limited control over how the text looked or where the captions appeared on-screen for the learner. Adobe has raised the bar quite a bit with Captivate 2017. To add closed captions, add voiceover audio to a slide and then choose Audio > Audio Management. Select the slide you’d like to caption and click the Closed Caption tool at the bottom of the Advanced Audio Management dialog box. (This process remains unchanged from earlier versions of Captivate.)
Position the playhead (the red line shown below) and then click Add Closed Caption.
At this point, you can add the caption by typing or copying/pasting from an existing voiceover script.
Once you’ve added the caption, you’ll be delighted to learn that the text can now be formatted without leaving the screen (for instance, you can now add emphasis to individual words or phrases such as bold or italic).
Once you’ve formatted the text within the caption, it’s time for the best part of all. Click CC Settings at the right of the dialog box.
Notice that you can now select from several slide positioning options and control the captions for an entire project or slide-by-slide. (How awesome is that?)
